Abstract

We report on a healthy 39-year-old man who developed spontaneous pneumomediastinum during a soccer game without a traumatic impact. Chest radiography and CT demonstrated the extensive pneumomediastinum and subcutaneous emphysema. Treatment of this rare condition is conservative and prognosis is excellent.
